On January 31, 2020, Muddy Waters Research (Muddy Waters) published an anonymous report alleging that Luckin had evolved into a fraud by fabricating financial and operating numbers starting in [the] 3rd quarter 2019. Among other allegations, Muddy Waters claims that the [n]umber of items per store per day was inflated by at least 69% in 2019 3Q and 88% in 2019 4Q and that Luckin inflated its net selling price per item by at least RMB 1.23 or 12.3%.
On this news, Luckins share price fell $3.91, or nearly 11%, to close at $32.49 per share on January 31, 2020, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) that certain of Luckins financial performance metrics, including per-store per-day sales, net selling price per item, advertising expenses, and revenue contribution from other products were inflated; (2) that Luckins financial results thus overstated the Companys financial health and were consequently unreliable; and (3) that, as a result, the Companys public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
